Norrie Short

MR PYESTOCK! Norrie is the president of the club and has clocked up an incredible 50+ years association with the club. Norrie also far outdates the clubs records and as such his achievements are not fully known. He was a consistent all rounder in the early days of his career; however problems with his eyes have seen his batting deteriorate in recent years. Local folklore insists that Norrie is guaranteed to score a 4 to win a match every season to further enhance status as a Pyestock legend. Extremely useful spin bowler who can tie up most batsmen, and took many unbelievable catches in his familiar silly mid off position in the field until a serious head injury whilst fielding there against Concorde in 2003 saw him withdrawn from the position by the skipper. Norrie became Pyestock’s first ever life member of the club when voted in unanimously by his fellow team-mates in 2004. In 2015 Norrie took to the field at the age of 80, continuing his run of playing in every season since 1963.
